HDR10? 10bit panel? Wide colour gamut?


Even a lot of the £700 tv screens don't have 10bit panels. Why do people insist on making this comments for low end television screens, it's absurd.

It's a £450 55" TV, nothing at this price has much in the way of HDR hardware. You need to be looking at stuff twice the price if you want that.

If its Plasma I'd keep it. Its probably still got a better picture than … If its Plasma I'd keep it. Its probably still got a better picture than most sub £1000 Tvs.



If only people understood instead of their misconceptions.

LCD has always been cheap to manufacture. From the early days of CCFL backlighting to the cheaper to produce LED edge lighting or such 'technological' advances as full array localised dimming to try to compensate black levels due to lack of contrast.

Throw in the buzz word "LED TV" to replace what still is "LCD", ramp up the production line with cheap 4K LCD panels, throw in HDR to a confused marketplace, leading to an onset of 10 million 4K sets unable to receive HDR10 content.

Add UHD to streaming options, don't tell the general public that with its streaming bitrate it is that compressed it is marginally better than 1080P Blu Ray disc titles.

Throw into the equation 4K Blu Ray discs....you know, physical media, the shiny discs most people scoff at these days...the only way to get true 4K content on 4K televisions without resorting to piracy (providing you have the bandwidth).

So, with that said, I vote this deal 'hot' its a good price for a 55" budget TV, but for anyone scoffing about Plasma, there is one word I have not mentioned yet 'OLED', the true successor to Plasma.

Personally, I am delighted with my cheap Plasma purchase with 5 years warranty at its production death knoll two years ago. Whilst I await the battle for the 4K format to mature, broadband speeds to meet required standards to stream true 4K content and OLED prices to drop I know that the picture on screen I am currently getting is way more to my liking.

definitely Gumree
A friend bought one of these recently, went to look at it as I was after the smaller model for the bedroom. it's a good tv for the money, PS4 and Xbone look great, also can install kodi and other android apps picture is clear, brightness is a little weak, but what do you want for the price!

Not a Samsung SUHD, but you can get nearly 3 of these for the same cost! Bargain price for size, 4k and ambilight... heat added!
is there no way to get itv player on this?

​AO. Com where advertising £400 trade in deal on tv last night

​If its android should be able to from playstore
I brought this TV a week ago at the same price. My only criticism is that the TV does exhibit noticeable screen clouding/bleeding. I found this true on two sets (I returned the first). Nevertheless, a good set for the money.

It has HDR, and it IS 10 Bit! I got this to replace two grand old Sony TV and this smashes it. HDR on Xbox One and 10 Bit running on my Sky Q coupled with Ambi it's a no brainier. No lag, no bleed, no issues full stop. Apps run quick, built in chromecast etc. Worth ALOT more than this cheap price

​i can't see this being a true 10 bit panel. it's barely capable of HDR as it's only got a 350 nit panel
Well don't buy it then if u don't want it. End of the day it's 10Bit that's automatically picked up by Sky Q, not the lower 8Bit which I must add is an option. If you don't want it, fine but come on mate it's penny's for this

​you got more chance selling a dead donkey. I think you may have to pay someone to take off your hands. good luck.
lol 10 bit panel at this price, various sources on the web confirm 8 bit panel, even a few higher models in the Philips range arent even 10 bit ffs.

Terrible TV, don't bother. Keeps lagging, crashing and the HDR is basically non existent. It has lights which illuminate but that's about the only cool thing.

It is hdr compatible. It accepts a 10bit signal. still an 8bit screen.
if a budget 1366x768 tv accepts a 1080p signal is it showing a 1920x1080 picture?
Manufacturers lie to sell you crap. 4K is the only good thing on this. 8bit and bog standard 350nit brightness. 50 lower than my 5 year old LG. True HDR needs about 1000-1200nits of brightness to display it as it should be seen.

It's not 10bit.
I guess while people like you still get suckered into believing any marketing material they see then the manufacturers will keep doing it!
TV threads on this forum always end up the same.
Why spend this much on an inferior product. Better off waiting it out a bit longer
good tv, but we gave up on it when we had 3 replacements and all had really bad bleed and flashlighting. Bought a hisense instead and its got none noticeable. If you get a good panel, though, its a great tv with a nice picture and feature set for very little
Genuine question, can those people that want a 10 bit panel tell the difference between a 10 bit panel and an 8 bit panel with dithering/+2 bits and decent software, or is it a case of just wanting it to be 10 bit so you can say it's 10 bit?
I'm only asking as I can't tell the difference, the ones I've seen of both types all have clean, clear colours with no halo/banding effect.

I've got the 49 inch of this ... It's brilliant. 4K Netflix works flawlessly. I never had any wi-fi drop out from this tv. The ambient lighting at the back is fantastic, making watching films really immersive.
